Former Manchester United defender Danny Higginbotham has said that Ruben Loftus-Cheek deserves a run in the Chelsea team.

With Jorginho and N'Golo Kante guaranteed to start, Loftus-Cheek is in competition with Mateo Kovacic and possibly Ross Barkley to take up the final spot in midfield, and Higginbotham is clear as to who he thinks deserves an opportunity.

"I don’t see any reason why you can’t play Kante and Jorginho and then have that one running midfielder – Loftus-Cheek maybe give him an opportunity.

"Have Kante sitting, allow Jorginho to be that deep lying playmaker, have Kante snuffing out the problems that come their way and give Loftus-Cheek the license to go forward and join in."

Loftus-Cheek climbed off the bench to seal victory over Fulham in the west London derby last weekend and that earned him a first Premier League start of the campaign against Wolves on Wednesday night.

"Why Sarri’s tried to do it [Kante pushed further forward] is they want to use Kante's energy and press high and by Kante running away from the ball you’re creating time and space for Jorginho," he said on Sky Sports' The Debate show.
